imag1163.jpgOctober will begin tomorrow, I originally was going to attempt to do a full-blown baking challenge for the month. Because of caregiving situations a 30 day baking challenge would be difficult to keep up with and I am not a food blogger. 

I’ve decided to share my favorites and recipes tried from other bloggers as often as time allows during October. Please leave comments with food bloggers I may want to check out or maybe a recipe I should share. 

Happy Fall Season to All!!

Bird landed on each sign I walked past

The life of a caregiver can be isolating to say the least. You want to stay positive and wear a smile, because folks don’t want to know the true thoughts that run through your mind on the bad days.

Imagine for a moment your walking next to me by the lake where I sometimes get to go for prayer and answers.  You notice after those prayers that a bird follows the path ahead of you by landing on each sign. Well it happened just that way and all I could wonder is how quirky it was to tell someone you felt a Bird was Waiting for you.

Falling for Fall isn’t that a catching thought? Most people may not think about falling for a season, but I have for many years. As I gaze out the window by my desk or sneak away to the lake I see a burst of my favorite colors everywhere. If you enter my home which is now a Cozy Condo in October you will see those colors everywhere, including deer, and foxes and such scattered among my decorations.  Falling for Fall includes sitting by warm fireplaces, wearing hoodies and preparing baked goods. 

please share in the comments which season you Fall for and maybe why? I look forward to the different reasons! 

 

 

Midlife brings so many thoughts to a person’s life. My mom spent the weekend with us and she turned 71 years old. 

I’m sure y’all have a parent who has turned that age also, although if you were sitting beside me in this Cozy Condo https://newlifeduringmidlife.wordpress.com/cozy-condo/

I would explain that she was not even supposed to see 1 of her grandchildren but has held all five of them and all 4 of her great-grandchildren; even my grand-daughter who is in Heaven.

I would attempt to tell you while holding back tears that when I was a mere 12 years old she had a ten hour surgery to remove a brain aneurism from center of her brain. She had 50/50 chance of survival and has out lived by father by 11 years now.  I can not return to my childhood home due to it now being boarded up. I can recall the person she was before the surgery and the person she has become these days.
